(CNN) — Most airplane exteriors look more or less the same — white backdrop, bold lettering, company logo — but every now and again, an airline unveils a livery that stands out from the pack.
German airline Condor is the latest carrier to step up its livery game with a simple yet stylish paint job. Condor’s fleet will soon be tricked out in candy-colored bold stripes, inspired by “parasols, bath towels and beach chairs,” according to the airline.
There are five color options: Condor says the blue stripes represent the sea, the yellow stripes recall sunshine, red represents “passion”, green represents “island” and a beige-gold stripe should make travelers think of a sandy beach.
The airline suggests the stripes also represent “the diversity of Condor’s guests, employees and the multitude of opportunities to discover the world with Condor.”

The first stripy Condor aircraft has already taken flight — an A321 furnished in yellow stripes departed Frankfurt, Germany to Lanzarote, one of Spain’s Canary Islands, at noon on April 5.
Condor has over 50 aircraft in its fleet, and promises the majority will be painted by 2024. Expect to see six of the striped aircraft in operation by this summer, with these aircraft flying to destinations including the Canary Islands, Greece and Egypt.
